Over twenty years after a nuclear war, Earth has become an inhospitable place. The last survivors have rallied together on the former moon base, with many refugees from Earth among them. Over the years a large human colony has formed, with its own fascist government and religions, including the Jobists, a cult that formed around the teachings of Steve Jobs and their leader (Tom Green).
But the ageing base is deteriorating and due to the damage the moon received in the nuclear war, its time is running out. Obi Washington (Lara Rossi), the daughter of Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) and James Washington, finds out that there may be other survivors hidden in an underground city at the centre of the earth with the means to save the base and decides to travel to earth to seek help.
However, Obi Washington and a ragtag band of explorers find at the centre of the earth are not even human—they stumble upon a pre-human world of dinosaurs ruled by the Vril, a race of reptilians led by Adolf Hitler (Udo Kier) in his true reptilian form…
Released on 16 January 2019 at the Fan World Premiere in Helsinki, Finland.
In the USA, Vertical Entertainment will release the movie in theaters, On Demand (VOD) and Digital HD on July 19, 2019.
